Ghosts of houses past...

I was obsessed with cottage style as you can see. My tastes have changed a bit but that doesn't stop me from getting nostalgic looking back. I prefer a bit more simple look now, a little less stuff. However, there are some things I wonder why I got rid of! I want some of it back! Call it sellers remorse!


Below is a peek at the dining room..





That led into my kitchen...( I see I left the dishes in the sink, must have had better things to do!)



The little breakfast nook...




Not sure why the garbage can is randomly out of place...The double oven was nice. Not so much the pot rack, I dropped a heavy pan I was hanging up and shattered the stove top.



The built in was fun, especially at Christmas with splashes of red. Now I would pare it down a bit and remove some of the "stuff."




Come upstairs with me...It was cool to find the wood floor under the indoor/outdoor carpet the previous owners had down- but a bear to refinish!




The landing at the top never felt finished or quite right so lets turn around...




and go back down...



I never felt right about the living room either, needed color on the walls. I wish I still had the lamp in the left corner!




And finally, the main bathroom!





Things weren't "styled" and put into place, these are pictures we took as we got close to being done remodeling. Thanks for coming down memory lane with me!

I loved that house! Especially the downstairs bathroom I loved the black and white look:)

The paper in the bathroom is beautiful and I love the stairs; the dark wood, the rounded doorway...so cute!
